Verse 1 I’ve got a feeling, its something that I can’t explain, There is no ending that you can see. Its all around us with thunder claps and heavy rain, No hesitation, you ask, “who are we”? Chorus We are Sparky Lightning & The Bolts coming for you. We are Sparky Lightning & The Bolts, it’s nice to meet you. Verse 2 I see it coming, a storm is forming overhead, the heat is rising to a thousand degrees. We’ll keep on singing until the lines are over-read, Rhythms that we play will bring you to your knees. Chorus We are Sparky Lightning & The Bolts coming for you. We are Sparky Lightning & The Bolts, it’s nice to meet you. Verse 3 Hi, I’m Al, and I play the bass. (Uh-huh) All in the band, we stick together. (All in the band, we stick together.) Hi, I’m Eddie, and I play the drums. (Oh yeah) All in the band, we stick together. (All in the band, we stick together.) Hello, I’m Gustav, I play the synthesizer. (Uh-huh) All in the band, we stick together. (All in the band, we stick together.) Hey, I’m Sparky, I play the guitar. (Uh-oh) Oh no, wait, now here comes trouble, Shred that guitar ‘till we see double. Bridge Sparky and his band have gone far away and much too long, but now, we’re here some how, and you’re allowed, so won’t you come along? Sparky and his band have tried, we’ll help your sorrow to subside, but now, we’re here some how, and you’re allowed to dance to that same song. Verse 4 I’ve got a feeling, its something that I can’t explain, There is no ending that you can see. Its all around us with thunder claps and heavy rain, No hesitation, you ask, “who are we”? Chorus We are Sparky Lightning & The Bolts coming for you.

Red Light 03:48
Verse 1 Riding your motor on the freeway, Leaving the road a little leeway, Rubbernecking on the speedway, Stopping at the light, you got to think of something else to say. Chorus Take me higher towards the sun, I’ll fall and tumble. Verse 2 Green light, go, go, got to go now, Yellow light, babe, you got slow down, Red light, stop, stop if you know how. Waiting at the light, she says, “what comes around, goes around”. Chorus Take me higher towards the sun, I’ll fall and tumble. Bridge The way that it was, The thing that she does, Turning that red light on, baby. I knew it was rough, But it wasn’t enough, Turning that red light on, baby. With you next to me in the passenger seat, Turning that red light on, baby. You know that I tried, When red light goes to green decide, Baby, let’s go for a ride. Chorus Take me higher towards the sun, I’ll fall and tumble.

1985 04:14
Verse 1 I was dancing alone in my room with a view, with my 8-track repeater. Had no desire to grow up anytime soon, and with my radio speaker, I would turn up the tune. Chorus In 1985, we’re taking a chance, had enough of making love, I just wanted to dance in 1985, I’m done with romance, had enough of making love, I just wanted to dance. Verse 2 Switching out the tape to hear some side-B Sting, I gave the music a listen. If Jackson could sing and if Prince were king, we’ve got only one question, where would The Bolts fit in? Chorus In 1985, we’re taking a chance, had enough of making love, I just wanted to dance in 1985, I’m done with romance, had enough of making love, I just wanted to dance. Verse 3 So, I was dancing alone in my room with a view, with my 8-track repeater. My momma would scream, “Turn that down, would you?”, but I’d just turn up the speaker. Riding on the sound-wave where Hall & Oates meet, they say she’s just a man-eater. Now give me all that music, we’re making it sweet. I don’t want to grow up, I just want to move my feet. Chorus In 1985, we’re taking a chance, had enough of making love, I just wanted to dance in 1985, I’m done with romance, had enough of making love, I just wanted to dance.

Shake Me Up 03:55
Verse 1 Put me in a bottle, you're shaking me up, You're gonna take it as you need it, no you can't get enough, You know my dirty little secret, I'm wanting it rough, oh, when you put me in a bottle and you're shaking me up. Chorus Shake me up! Shake me up! Shaking me up! Shake me up! Verse 2 Put me in a bottle, you're shaking me up, You're gonna take it as you need it, no you can't get enough, You know my dirty little secret, I'm wanting it rough, oh, when you put me in a bottle and you're shaking me up. Chorus Shake me up! Shake me up! Shaking me up! Shake me up! Bridge No, don't go, I wanted to show, Baby, we're taking it low, Baby, that's all that I know. (Put me in a bottle baby, shale me up and...) (Shake me up, shake me up, ooh woah...) Put me in and shake me up! Verse 3 Put me in a bottle, you're shaking me up, You're gonna take it as you need it, no you can't get enough, You know my dirty little secret, I'm wanting it rough, oh, when you put me in a bottle and you're shaking me up. Chorus Shake me up! Shake me up! Shaking me up! Shake me up!

Paparazzi 04:13
Verse 1 So it goes, don’t you stare, now, babe, I’ll take a picture. Want a show? Won’t be long, now, babe, I’ll take a picture. All you wanted to know, Here today, but, I’ll be gone tomorrow. All you wanted to know, Flash your camera, I’ll give you a story to follow. Chorus Meet my maker and solve the mystery, Made a mistake and the rest is history. (Telling the lies that you feed me). Verse 2 Ebb and flow, Hold your pose, now, babe, I’ll take a picture. Take it slow, Rest assured, now, babe, I’ll take a picture. All you wanted to know, Holding still, Come on, let’s see a smile. All you wanted to know, Flash your camera, Before you go out of style. Chorus Meet my maker and solve the mystery, Made a mistake and the rest is history. (Telling the lies that you feed me). Bridge Where did you go yesterday? What did you do to your hair? Did you take a trip to LA? Do you even care? Who is the lady you’re with? What is the brand that you wear? Is there something we missed? Anything else to share? Chorus Meet my maker and solve the mystery, Made a mistake and the rest is history. (Telling the lies that you feed me).

Chorus Let the music control me, rhythms console me ‘till I feel it again. Let the music control me, rock and roll me, ‘till you meet your end. Verse 1 How the party continued in the midnight, How the melody moves you. No need to worry ‘cause everything is alright. There is never an issue, So come along and…. Chorus Let the music control me, rhythms console me ‘till I feel it again. Let the music control me, rock and roll me, ‘till you meet your end. Verse 2 Getting under your skin, you know, its too late. Now the dance has a hold of you. Shuffle into the night and don’t you wait. There is plenty for us to do. So come along and…. Chorus Let the music control me, rhythms console me ‘till I feel it again. Let the music control me, rock and roll me, ‘till you meet your end. Bridge Don’t you walk out, don’t make me shout out loud for you to stay. There is no doubt, you’ll spin about and dance the night away. We’ll blow the top, no we won’t stop until we’re old and grey. So jump and hop, about to pop, Time to play anyway, Where’d you say we’re going? Chorus Let the music control me, rhythms console me ‘till I feel it again. Let the music control me, rock and roll me, ‘till you meet your end.

Watered Down 04:43
Verse 1 You made the call, now will you stop and listen? The sky would fall and you would still want to go. Pre-Chorus All I wanted to say, wouldn’t take very long, Before I’d explain, you would be gone. Chorus Only the rain will make it all watered down, Hoping it will all remain the same, but now its all watered down. Wandering where no one goes and plant the rose to grow into the mystery of love. You’re now at home, its safe and warm, you’re not alone. Verse 2 I’ll shout out loud, but do you even hear me? Head in the clouds I wouldn’t know where to go. Pre-Chorus All I wanted to say, wouldn’t take very long, Before I’d explain, you would be gone. Chorus Only the rain will make it all watered down, Hoping it will all remain the same, but now its all watered down. Wandering where no one goes and plant the rose to grow into the mystery of love. You’re now at home, its safe and warm, you’re not alone.

Verse 1 You wouldn’t say that I want you, You wouldn’t want it to be. I wouldn’t say there’s an issue, Take it, my love is for free. Turning my eyes to a new world, lost in the stars till today, Making my move back to you, girl, yeah, you want it that way. Chorus Make a way for the lightyear jumper end. (Space it out and look within yourself, you’ve got something, you've got something.) Verse 2 Telling yourself that you want to escape from the fog to the sea, Sparky, in light of a full view, will take off to your galaxy. We know its hard to believe, taking The Bolts far away, sorry for saying we must leave, when we wanted to stay. Chorus Make a way for the lightyear jumper end. (Space it out and look within yourself, you’ve got something, you've got something.) Bridge Reach out, reach out to me, Breathe out and come on back to me, Reach out, reach out to me, Look out as far as we can see. Chorus Make a way for the lightyear jumper end. (Space it out and look within yourself, you’ve got something, you've got something.)
